    All I have to say is this:



    If they do this, it's over for consoles! Us believers in our GLORIOUS LORD AND SAVIOUR GABEN's love and grace's devotion will have paid off at last! While we needed emulators for consoles up to the Wii U and the Switch, if Sony starts going full Microsoft in supporting PC (and yes, as much as I wouldn't mind seeing them get kicked to the curb and left to wither away on the streets of the marketplace, timed exclusivity on EGS I suppose could count, if only for the fact that the game's code has been optimized to run on PC hardware, and that, if one really wanted to play a game right then and there, they at least have *cough*...ahem, other options of playing it that don't require EGS, if you know what I mean), we won't need a PS4 emulator like Orbital or Spine to play the few exclusive games on the platform!



    You know, it's funny. Back in 2015, I wanted to build a gaming PC, but someone who I thought was my best friend wanted me to get an Xbox One. And when I say wanted, I mean, "this will be the end of our friendship" if I didn't get one. I was telling him that Microsoft was gonna be allowing people to play what I assumed at the time was just their games on both PC and Xbox One. I didn't think it was ever gonna get the push or support that its ended up getting now, and I sure as fuck didn't expect all of their games to come to Steam, which means that, if you think about it, you don't even need Windows to play these games anymore! You could use Linux with WINE or Steam Proton, and play Killer Instinct or Halo just fine! Hence why I get a very devilish grin when shit like this happens, because this person who I thought was my friend got so pissed over me not getting an Xbox One just because I had always wanted a good gaming PC and I told him a future that I didn't think would actually happen, but it did, and I am definitely not complaining!

    The only thing that could kill all of this is some of the rumblings about PC's switching over to ARM in terms of CPU architecture. Granted, a part of me thinks that's more for laptops and not so much for desktops, but who knows. It seems like the trend nowadays is to make everything operate like a smartphone in terms of people not having to worry about using files and the like, what with Windows 10S and some of the things I've heard about Windows 10X.

    People still want consoles apparently. It's easier, cheaper and takes up less space than a pc gaming rig.
    Me, I just upgraded my pc and sold my switch as emulation is getting good. No more consoles for me.

    No because Quick Resume is a legitimate reason for some people to buy this console even though the games they play were also available on PC. While the PS5 was always pointless to begin with, with exclusives being the only excuse to buy it.

    True but if Sony refused to release God of War series nor the sequels to PC then PS5 is fine.

    Only bother me is XBOX.. why XBOX if XBOX games are going to PC. That's big difference.

    You most likely put me in the wrong (x)box. I'm a PC gamer. Never had any XBox or PS. Exactly for the reason I gave earlier, they've always been useless hardware with exclusive software to push people to buy them (though theres was a time when PC were very very pricey so consoles were useful, but that was a long time ago).

    So seeing a feature in a console I can't get on PC for once, that gets my attention.
    Now maybe that feature will be pure shit, working on a small selection of games or whatever thing that makes it unusable in practice and that's why I won't buy it (or maybe because it's not worth paying $500 when I can play the same games just without that feature). Still, I'm more interested in following news about XBox hardware than Sony hardware.

    Now, I'm interested in Sony giving up with their stupid hardware and releasing more games on PC and that's why I'm in this thread, but I don't really like people hating on the XBox when the PS deserves it more (though probably both of them deserve it) hence my answer earlier (not to you).

    I don't understand why you really don't like people hating on the XBOX. Nothing's wrong with that. That's what called OPINION.

    Not everyone are the same. We are totally 100 percent different. That's naturally.

    The reason I don't like XBOX is because they are already available on PC. So why bother to have PC and XBOX? If you don't have PC then that's fine.

    Therefore, I prefer Sony Playstation over XBOX because Sony Playstation was existed when I purchased it before XBOX existed. And I realised that XBOX games existed on PC anyway.

    Sony won't gave up some major games to PC like God of War series/sequels which I loved.

    I have a PC so I don't bother with XBOX at all. Sorry about my English.

    If you want to play PlayStation or Nintendo games during its prime you're still better off buying the consoles because emulation can take years.

    Companies can say what fans want to hear, but they don't necessarily mean they'll do.

    One thing is dislike, another is hate. Hate is rather extreme.

    There is something wrong with that.

    I'll give you an example of something that I hate, you know mosquitoes, right? I absolutely hate them because they'll absorb my blood and then leave me itching to scratch it so I wish those buggers would cease to exist.

    The WiiU was a massive failure so I'm glad that Nintendo has ported all or nearly all WiiU exclusives to the Switch. There's no point buying a WiiU now, maybe except for collectors.

    Only game I can think of that hasn't been ported: Project Zero 5 (Maiden of Black Water). I enjoyed that a lot and so should new gamers who haven't played it.

    I'd like to see Persona become available on Steam or GOG; I'd happily buy P3FES and P5R (again).
    Also Marvel's Spider-Man, Ghost of Tsushima (far too expensive for me, at AU$100 for the base version; waiting for a sale), and...uh...properly ported Ratchet & Clank original trilogy and Deadlocked...?

    ...I don't really remember any other worthwhile PlayStation exclusives...

    Why don't you import GoT from U.K. or any other country near to you?

    Twilight Princess HD, The Wind Waker HD, DS Virtual Console. As far as I'm concerned, there's only ONE Legend of Zelda game on the Switch that's at least "good" - Link's Awakening.
    Also, the ability to play Wii games is...something. Most of them suck donkeys due to dysfunctional motion controls (in all of my attempts, anyway), but I'd recommend SSB Brawl and Super Paper Mario. Still, backwards-compatibility is something the Wii U notably has over the Switch.

    ...I haven't looked at exchange rates or shipping rates recently, and that option never occurred to me. That's "why", honestly. :blush:

    Agreed, but some of us have been able to luckily find work during this pandemic and still usually only have only so many hours after getting home from work to do anything, let alone play games.

    Besides, good games should be timeless. The only thing that would be in its prime would be multiplayer stuff, and that's why I usually don't play much multiplayer these days.
